Emmaus City Church
City Kids

Kids help us discover more of the depths of Jesus' love and good news for all.


City Groups


Kids are amazing members of God's family who share the hospitality, generosity, and love of Jesus in ways that impact infants to the elderly. We are amazed at how they teach us about worship, community, and mission in our City Groups, and we often learn from them how to be faithful servants, humble learners, and hopeful witnesses. We continue to see and celebrate that what Jesus said is true, "Anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming Me (Matthew 18:4-5).


Sabbath Gatherings


Ages: 0 - 3

Children ages 0-3 may be cared for in the nursery during the entire Sabbath gathering.

Ages: 4+

If your child is 4 years of age or older, or if you would prefer to keep your child(ren) in the service, you are welcome to do so. Children have a wonderful capacity to worship and we believe they are an invaluable part of the family of God. The service of worship is a time to consider who God is, what He has done, and who we are before Him together with your family. We encourage you to engage your children’s attention with the different aspects of the service as they happen. You can also use the bulletin with the explanations, song lyrics and verses so they can think about what is going on and what is being shared about God’s story. On our welcome table, you will find crayons and drawing paper, along with helpful questions on the back, to help any child(ren) engage with the service.

City Kids Director Position Available
If you are interested in seeing how we can expand our City Kids ministry into new age groups (ex. 0-3 year olds, 4-6 year olds, 7-10 year olds) in ways that are shaped around worship, community, and mission, we are looking for someone to step into this position soon. Let us know if you are interested.

Made on
